While the reasoning behind an extension on custody of Sushil was based around continuing with the probe, the prosecution noted that things like the weapon, clothes and phones were still to be recovered.
Sushil was using the Telegram app and internet dongle to use his SIM-less phone to contact his associates while on the run from the police, Crime Branch has revealed.
Sushil’s camp meanwhile made it clear that they were not impressed with the demand, adding that he is not a “dreaded criminal” and that he has brought the country laurels.
Sushil and Ajay Kumar had been arrested on 23 May on the outskirts of the national capital after being on the run for 20 days. Almost 10 days after arrest, the Delhi Police suspended Sushil’s arms license
The veteran wrestler’s tiff with the Sagar Dhankhar and his friends kicked off due to matters regarding property.
